Notes 
 Ramon Laureano just checks the boxes for what you want in a fantasy player. Power? Check. Speed? Check. Elite-level defense? Check. Outside of walks, Laureano is the total package that fantasy players look for. He's not elite in any category, but as long as he continues to run and have an elite line-drive rate, he'll be a must-start option throughout the season.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
If you're the type of fantasy player who likes to buy low on players off a down year, then Andrew Benintendi is the type of guy that you want to target. He was, after all, going in the late third to early fourth round of drafts in 2019, and he has the pedigree of a top prospect that you want. Is he going to become the second coming of Christian Yelich? Yeah, that's unlikely, but he's still in a good lineup (even without Mookie Betts), and he'll contribute everywhere but home runs. And even then, he still isn't a zero there.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Laureano was never a big-time prospect but he certainly put on a show in just 123 games last year, knocking 24 homers with 13 steals and a .286 batting average. Over a full season, he could potentially end up around 30/20 but he does come with some risk.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Benintendi had a disappointing offensive season in 2019, hitting just 13 homers with 10 steals and a .266 batting average. There is upside, sure, but if he repeats that production, he is barely worth drafting, let alone all the way up in the top 100 picks where his ADP currently is.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Power/Speed combo players are tremendous roto fantasy assets, but he is still young and had some very rough patches in 2019. Not buying into this breakout that some people are expecting. 20/20 is certainly viable, but there will be ups and downs.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
There is really no reason not to buy Benintendi at his current ADP. He will get you HRs and SBs with a decent average, and a solid amount of runs and RBIs. I am quite certain 2019 will be his low point, not his norm.
